I've only compiled (and haven't tested this code), but it should be much
faster than the original code. Why? Because we're eliminating an extra
"jump" in several places in the code every time open would be called.
Yes, it's more code, so the kernel is a little bigger, but it should be
faster at the same time, and memory should be less of an issue nowadays.

Here's the patch if you want to apply it (i have only compile tested it,
I haven't booted with it).. This patch applied to the 2.5.56 kernel.
